House in Shatura
The house located in a town about 150 km from Moscow, in a private houses area that is highly diversified. There are no rules or limitations, one street can be place for houses built from trash and 3-storey height brick castles. Surroundings are full of “architecture without architects”, everything is always in process: if you need a new room you construct it, without any project and with the material you have at the moment. How to relate with this diversified and often revolting surroundings?
Russian studio Le Atelier tried to answer this question making the house from the environment and local techniques, from the “architectural garbage” they see driving to the town: big brick “palaces” from 90-s, wooden DIY-houses, industrial architecture, abandoned buildings. The square one-storey house was constructed on a basement that was made without any project by the client himself.
